Re: VX-3 6.5-20X50 LRT Revews

Great buy for the money. Has more MOA built into it than the MK4 Tactical and from what I have seen in mine I like the glass a bit better. I have two of those and one of the 8.5X25X50's and a MK4 Tactical and really like them all. I also have the NF 5.5X22X50NXS and for my eyes their every bit as good and maybe a bit better under certain conditions. Knobs work fine although a bit on the tall side.
I did have problems with one of the 6.5X20's and I don't know what happened but when I went to screw off the cap on the top turret it screwed right out of the scope. It's going to have to go back and get repaired but that is not a biggie. I think it was caused by my being a bit heavy handed and shooting while wearing gloves. I'm going to also see if Leupold can install the TM1 reticule and maybe the shorter M1 knobs on it when it goes back. Other than that its a great scope for the money.

I have that scope on a 240 wby and have a lot of kills beyond 600 yards with it and several not so far.

very good scope we use several leupolds
Send it back to the custom shop and have a turret on it you willl not regrete it
either the m1 or the cds.
What reticle does it have in it?

Re: VX-3 6.5-20X50 LRT Revews

you should be very happy with that
take it out and shoot it to figure out exactly where the reticle hits and work up a drop chart
the only thing we did not like about thoses turrest are the caps
I prefer the m1 turretrs but they both work fine.
we really love our leupolds
